De Bruyne scored a goal on four shots (two on target) and tallied two assists in Saturday's 6-1 victory over Newcastle.

While Sergio Aguero will get all of the headlines, the Wolfsburg transfer was one of the most industrious players on the pitch and has been ever since he put a City kit on. In four Premier League matches, he has scored three goals and tallied two assists and has quickly become a fixture of the team's starting XI and instrumental in the team's forward movement.

De Bruyne scored a goal in Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Tottenham.

De Bruyne has now scored in three straight matches including City's mid-week fixture against Sunderland in the Capital One Cup. The Belgian national has quickly asserted himself as one of, if not the most, important attacking piece on the team behind Sergio Aguero despite having been in Manchester for less than a month.

De Bruyne scored a goal on four shots (one on target) in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to West Ham.

As the final seconds of first half stoppage time whisked away, De Bruyne scored his first Premier League goal for City. The £54 million man has acquitted himself nicely since arriving from Wolfsburg at the end of the month and this goal shows how quickly he's gelled with his new teammates.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne will make his first start for Manchester City in Saturday's match against West Ham.

De Bruyne featured off the bench in his Premier League debut with City last week against Crystal Palace, but he was always expected to start for manager Manuel Pellegrini. The insertion of De Bruyne into the starting XI relegates Wilfried Bony to the bench for the foreseeable future, unless Pellegrini elects to utilize a formation with two forwards.

De Bruyne was an early substitute in Saturday's 1-0 win at Crystal Palace.

De Bruyne replaced Sergio AgŁero (knee) in the 24th minute and looked impressive in first a support striker role and later as a winger. The Belgian winger should have had a debut assist after he played in Jesus Navas, who missed an open goal.

De Bruyne is available off the bench Saturday against Crystal Palace.

De Bruyne was expected to get the start, with David Silva sidelined with an ankle injury, but Samir Nasri will slot into the starting XI instead. That being said, De Bruyne is fully expected to get the starting job sooner rather than later.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne signed a six-year contract with Manchester City on Sunday after transferring from Wolfsburg.

De Bruyne is likely the last piece of a significant summer signing period for the Citizens, who also added Raheem Sterling, Fabian Delph and Nicolas Otamendi. De Bruyne struggled in the Premier League when he was with Chelsea, but he flourished in Germany and Man City are surely hoping he'll be able to transfer his form over. He's likely to start out on the wing opposite Raheem Sterling, with David Silva firmly entrenched in the No. 10 role, though the two could rotate in and out.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne is expected to finalize his move from Wolfsburg to Manchester City in a club-record £54 million transfer this weekend, the Manchester Evening News reports.

De Bruyne struggled in the Premier League when he was with Chelsea, but he absolutely thrived with Wolfsburg last season, helping them finish second in the Bundesliga and clinch a spot in the Champions League this season (coincidentally, they will play in Manchester United's group). He is expected to replace Jesus Navas on the right wing despite playing a more central role in Germany, but with David Silva entrenched as the No. 10, De Bruyne will be pushed out wide.
